seen complaints about investigative files. i don't know how explicit this particular document should be about complaints, files and related documents. i just don't want anyone to interpret any more or less from this language than is appropriate. i am not sure that i am prepared to think through whether an investigation under these regs is the same as an investigation under 6.99-13 whether it's an investigative file as law enforcement agency, how it deals with rivera. all of those issues, i suspect, if we ever have a referral or have an investigation and generate these files, somebody is going to say let me see them. and then we're going to go back and forth about whether it is or isn't. i'm just trying to anticipate that now and have language in here or different language shall be disclosed as necessary or under cpra or sunshine, which isn't necessarily the most helpful. i mean it's true, but what does that mean? >> so you would propose to strike it entirely? >> i am struggling and i'm not quite sure what the best answer is, frankly. i am expressing a concern about it. and i suspec

not. it would still not be categorically exempt because the two exemptions they rely on really don't apply. one is existing facilities, which is minor alteration of existing facilities involving negative liberal or no -- use. and one of the examples is cited of an existing facility can be a bicycle trail. well there is no bike lane existing on oak so the exemption doesn't even arguably apply to oak. there are no buffer strips on either street nor are there raised plantares. so it wouldn't apply to that piece of it. and i guess getting out to the idea of raised plantares this is also a unique circumstance which is one of the other item -- one of the other categories that takes you out of the exemption because -- this is the first time in any project in san francisco where you can actually have these raised concrete plantares in the middle of the street in effect which will be safety hazard and so forth, plus all of the parking lots, when you combine the two, would impact each other. but getting back to the -- >> supervisor wiener: do you think any time you add a bike lane does that

of the things that could be looked at is exactly what we're talking about here -- i don't know, fee structure, and if there is local generation that occurs that perhaps there is a conversation or some work that looks at those pg&e fees, and since it's really no longer going to be a pg&e provided service because it's generated by a local build out project perhaps there is a financial mechanism that could take place or enacted at that point. i don't know. i don't know if that has happened before or some of the other nationwide programs that exist, but i imagine where that financial relationship begins to shift. >> it could be. the sfpuc has been active at the california public utilities commission ever whenever this issue comes up for evaluation so we're on the look out for opportunities to argue to have only justified and reasonable costs follow potential customers into the cca service provision, so it's not a charge that pays pg&e for kilowatt hours that are provided to the customer. there is no relationship between what the customer consumes in terms of the portfolio serving that custome

. if you don't want to be part of the cleanpower sf program and you tell us that there is no departure charge that a customer incurs that we are charging. after the program is launched if you then decide -- oh i got my first cleanpower sf bill. i don't want to be part of this program. we are still as the city saying there is no charge to depart from the program at that point. pg&e doesn't have a fee to exit the program during that portion of the time either. >> they don't have a fee that charge it's. >> the fee that we do include and maybe what you're referring to is the cost responsibility surcharge where if a customer leaves pg&e's bundedel service and comes to a cca pg&e will take a portion of the fees they used to charge that customer and those fees will follow the customer so the bill premiums that i am showing here include that as part of the premium so this is all in image of how your bill changes even though it's something we're not charging and pg&e is charging and they joined the program we're including in the numbers so it's transparent to customers. >> and that fee is r

to that? okay. why don't we open it up to public comment. >> good afternoon again commissioners. eric brook representing san francisco green party and the local organization our city. first a technical point on all of this. i was under the impression and check with dhr on this that the executive position still exists but filled on an interim basis. maybe i am wrong on that but good to make sure you're correct on that from the staff's perspective. i agree bringing it back in house because the next year is going to be really big for clean power sf and some other things and we need somebody that can be available five days a week, 50 weeks a year. i mean that's really going to be important, but the main thing i want to focus on is that the advocates for clean power sf have had some concerns with the way that lafco -- when we originally set set up lafco to work on clean power sf and especially get at the beginning of 2007 and what we needed from lafco and i believe the intention we needed somebody on task for clean power sf itself that could approach the sf puc on many occasions the sf

is the security issue, right now, i don't believe that there will be adequate fences, gates to prevent homeless people from walking on the docks and decide to take up residents in whatever boat they choose to live on or steal things from it, it's paramount that also be addressed and if it's not complete, that there be firm commitments and some binding means by which -- that will be done by a certain date because frankly, we're paying a lot of money. this is one of the few park facilities that you have in your general management that is a profit center, the money being taken in under the harbor trust dictates that money's supposed to stay in there and it's supposed to be allocated from there. it is supposed to be cash neutral and in a sense, the city is about to try to gain a lot more income without meeting the minimum bare requirements, the design requirements, i think the park commission should look at those issues and respond to a formal way to look into that. >> thank you. >> is there anyone else who would like to make public comment on this item. seeing none, public comment is closed. commi

is your last order? >> you know, the crowd really dies out at 3:00, and after 3:00 we don't take new customers therefore they are not going to be any problem getting people out of there, half hour, when we are taking orders on the counter the customers are told that you have to leave at 3:30. we are shutting down the lights and that warning will go out when we take that order right in front of the customer. if they want to order at that point they can leave the restaurant and go to the dine er a cross the street. there will be customers that we are just take out. we will still have that understanding of the customer when they do come to the counter. >> so, the basic situation right now is that it is all about trust. >> we basically have trust issues here. >> what i am basically saying that if you go to 3:30 and you say that you going to do the last transaction at three and everybody out at 3:30 and going to trust you and if this gentleman is your spokesperson and not working there at night we are going to go to you if you are on staff. and if the inspector goes there they will look

owners so it's hard for the city to do smart energy and policy if we don't know where we're starting from so we need to benchmark as a city and need property owners to know what their energy use and patterns are within their own property. the second one is to encourage local renewable energy and dg distributed generation and don't need to build new transition needs and local security and keep the dollars in the local economy and to help with us there are a number of recommendations and they're tinkering around the edge of our regulatory process and rules but ultimately we want to work together to drive comprehensive energy policy to support renewables and continue to take the lead on streamlining the processes and working with neighboring jurisdictions to do that as well so we have a standard system bay area wide and include this for local renewals and work with pg&e and we have a robust electric grid downtown and precludes installing renewable energy there and work with the homeowners so they know the options and how to finance it -- >> chair campos. >> commissioner mab. >> can i ask dan

there they will look for the responsible party. so we don't want to hear that i am just the guy that you know speaks english better or whatever. and he is not even there and he is speaking for you people. i just want to make sure that you understand that if we do this, that means that whatever he is not the fall guy, you know? whoever is manager on that duty is going to be the fall guy. so what you are telling us to give us something in good faith and we are now saying something whereas there is a trust issue here and so do we want to go in and give you that trust to 3:30? that is the big debate right now. >> all right. is there any other questions? >> okay, why don't you have a seat. >> thank you. >> i am opening the floor, please, thank you, sir. push >> good evening, commissioners, i'm officer mike tores representing captain garity. >> we recommend approval for this application from 2:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. with the conditions that you just mentioned earlier. and i would like to read some of the calls for service that we have had for the last two years briefly so you kind of have an idea of what ha

it works given what we anticipated about a year-ago going into this cycle. i don't know if staff has an indication of when that mike be happening. >> a few months. >> thanks. next item on the agenda is discussion and possible action on the amendments to the ordinance. >> nobody is a stranger to the subject matter in front of us. the commission made some progress and combing through input from the sunshine ordinance task force and the staff's updated and redirected recommendations and then once again, after the last time the commission discussed this, staff has put together sort of a chronology of what has happened so far, and tried to distill all of the direction from the commission into a set of decision points to help us to finish this. and then move to getting the dregs into effect. there are eight decision points in front of you to go through the last few more housekeeping than anything else. but we're ready to answer any questions the commission has as they go through these. >> my thought was to begin by taking one decision point at a time. there may be somewhere we can cons
